San Francisco’s Blame Sally continue their U.S. tour with a performance at 8:30 p.m. Friday at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters. This follows a year that found the rock/folk-tet rise from “Bay Area phenom” (Santa Cruz Sentinel) to “a remarkable success story” (San Luis Obispo New Times) with the release of “Speeding Ticket and A Valentine,” selected as Best Album of the Year in Alternate Root Magazine’s People’s Choice Awards.

“There’s a lot of Stevie Nicks in Blame Sally’s countrified folk rock,” says Vintage Guitar Magazine, “but these veterans are less full of themselves, earthier, more self-assured — and more fun, too.”

Blame Sally’s 2011 highlights included two sold-out shows at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and its song “Living Without You” featured as the song of the day on NPR.

The four women who make up Blame Sally — Jeri Jones, Renee Harcourt, Monica Pasqual and Pam Delgado — are “one of the great stories in contemporary folk/pop music,” a news release said. “Deciding to create a band with all members older than 40, Blame Sally has come ‘out of nowhere’ to become one of folk and pop music’s most talked-about and listened-to newer bands.

“Of course, they didn’t come out of nowhere as each member has been playing and recording music on their own or with other bands for years. But with Blame Sally they have created an exciting and inspiring folk, pop and rock sound that is truly an ensemble experience — all members contributing equally with great singing, smart songwriting and exquisite musicianship.”

Each member brings distinctive qualities to the band — Jones with her powerful and sensitive guitar playing, Pasqual’s inventive songwriting and compelling voice, Harcourt’s pop songwriting sensibility and voice, and Delgado’s propulsive and spirited percussion.

“Their songwriting is often personal, occasionally political and always thoughtful, and their blended voices is a thing of beauty,” the news release said.

Tickets are $20, available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if available. For more information, visit www.palmsplayhouse.com or http://www.blamesally.com
